Shoulderstand lotus in November 9th 2017. Shoulderstand lotus was the first leg variation I did in shoulderstand or  Salamba Sarvangasana. Sanskrit designation is  Padma Sarvangasana. I have h
Shoulderstand lotus (Padma Sarvangasana)
Lolasana in November 10th 2017. I've found the best way to get crossed legs here is to start lolasana as usual, hold for a couple of seconds and then cross ankles. I can hold for about ten seconds now, maybe I go for ankle switches next time :)
Lolasana (Pendant Pose)
Lotus pose in November 11th 2017. I can't make a full lotuspose without using my hands, or rise into headstand from seated lotus. But forming a half lotus in midair works, so I bring that, and

Eka Pada Sirsasana in November 19th 2017. This variation is new to me, and I did first expect to get something similar to my day 17 post. But I decided to give it a try to lift my butt off the
